GeForce 387.92 Driver Boosts Forza 7 Performance by up to 25%

GeForce 387.92 driver boosts Forza 7 performance

Nvidia have rolled out their new GeForce 387.92 driver, which is said to offer a performance boost of between 15-25% in Microsoft’s latest Forza Motorsport 7.

Nvidia’s GeForce 387.92 Driver brings FPS boost to Forza Motorsport 7; Game Ready for Shadow of War and The Evil Within 2

Recently, we saw AMD’s RX Vega 64 outperforming Nvidia’s GTX 1080 Ti by around 23% in Forza 7 DirectX 12 benchmarks. This came as a surprise because the flagship 1080 Ti is usually ahead of Vega cards and GTX 1080 by more than 30%.

Nvidia confirmed the ranking was unusal, so its driver team worked to develop optimizations for the game. The result is Geforce 387.92 driver, which delivers significant increase in performance over the original “Game Ready” drivers.

Our driver team spends a considerable amount of time developing optimizations and improvements for the latest games before they’re launched, ensuring you have a great experience the second they’re available. The work doesn’t end at launch, however, as our team continually searches for further improvements in game code and our drivers, collaborating with developers whenever possible.

The fruits of this labor can be seen today in our new Game Ready driver, which introduces performance improvements of between 15-25%, depending on your system configuration, in the recently-released Forza Motorsport 7.

Apart from bringing performance improvements to Forza Motorsport 7, GeForce 387.92 driver is also Game Ready for Middle-earth: Shadow of War, The Evil Within 2 and Arktika.1, which are all due to launch this week.

With regards to Shadow of War, Nvidia recommends a GTX 1080 Ti to play at 4K @ 60 fps High preset, and a GTX 1080 Ti SLI for Ultra preset.

The new GeForce 387.92 Driver is downloadable either via GeForce Experience or the official GeForce website. You can check out the driver change log below:
